May 15/17 – Mike and Nikki’s May Newsletter
May 2017 Issue

Mike Morse

Hi Everyone!

We hope you had an enjoyable weekend.

These days, time seems to be flying by. Next month, school is over for the summer. Seafest 2017 is three weeks away. It’s a busy time for most people, as kids’ recreational activities amp up. Plus, as the weather gets better, many of us feel the need to spend time working on the outside of our house. Did someone say “Cut the grass?”.

In the meantime, projects in the Prince Rupert area continue to crop up and evolve. Here are some news of interest that have come up since our last newsletter:

Montreal logistics company sets sights on Prince Rupert 

Aurora LNG project still in the works 

Port of Prince Rupert exploring ‘gas station’, not oil terminal 

Vopak teams up with AltaGas for propane terminal

Phase 2 cranes on their way to Fairview 

Thank you!

5 Quick Ways to Organize Your Home

If you’re at a loose end for 15 minutes or so, why not tackle one (or more!) of these quick ways to keep your home organized?

  1. Stack your tupperware – Tupperware is easy to stack neatly. However, the temptation is always to shove it in the cupboard any old how. Take everything out and stack your containers in one pile lids in another. They’ll take up much less room, and you negate the risk of a plastic avalanche every time you open the cupboard.
  2. Reorganize your spice rack – As you use them, herbs and spices tend to get shoved back into the nearest available space. Instead, think about which herbs/spices you use the most, then make sure they are easily accessible.
  3. Remove expired food from the fridge – Go through everything in your fridge and toss out anything past its expiry date. Reorganize whatever’s left for easier access.
  4. Declutter your bag or purse – Any bag, be it a rucksack or a purse, that you use on a regular basis tends to get filled up with receipts, pens and who knows what else. Take out everything that doesn’t need to be in the bag, and put the rest in sensible places for easy access.
  5. Take back your nightstand – Nightstands tend to become a bit of a dumping ground, so have a thorough clear-up. Think about what you really use, and find a new home for the rest.
